Admission Criteria

The Admission Committee evaluates applicants to determine if they have the qualifications and commitment needed to succeed in our rigorous academic environment. With an average acceptance rate of 80%, Neumont students are dedicated and driven tech-geeks. On average, students who enrolled in Fall 2015 had a cumulative high school GPA of 3.21, an average composite ACT score of 24, and/or an average combined math and reading SAT score of 1100. The Committee relies heavily on academic achievements, such as standardized test score (ACT and/or SAT) and cumulative high school GPA, to assess an applicant.

However, we also recognize that not all of your strengths can be shown through a test score, so the Committee also evaluates life experience, personal essays, technology expertise, interest in technology, and proven work ethic. If there is something about your background that we should evaluate beyond test scores and GPA contact our Office of Admissions.

To ensure your application is an accurate reflection of your qualifications, please remember to:

  • Take your application seriously: Your application is similar to a homework assignment. Remember, what's appropriate when you're texting isn't appropriate on an application.
  • Avoid sloppiness: Pay attention to spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Proofread your application before submitting.
  • Ask others to read your application: Their comments can be invaluable.
  • Get clarification: If you're not sure how to handle a question, ask your Admission Officer for clarification.

International Applicants: If you are not a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident, please visit our International Students page for application information and contact our Director of Enrollment.

Admission and Enrollment Deferral Policy


Accepted applicants may defer admission and continuing students may defer enrollment at Neumont College of Computer Science. Please note however that Neumont hosts a rigorous project- and problem-based academic model which presents specific challenges to this opportunity. Our curriculum was designed for students who expect to attend full-time with intent to graduate in 12 consecutive quarters. Any variance to this plan may often result in delayed graduation. For more on this topic, please speak with the Office of Admissions or the Office of the Registrar.

Admission Deferral

Neumont supports an accepted applicant’s decision to attend the institution when it is most appropriate for that accepted applicant. Because of this, there are two options for applicants to participate in Admission Deferral.

  1. Accepted applicants may defer their offer of admission for up to four years. They must however re-submit a current application prior to the quarter they wish to matriculate. Although the application fee does NOT need to be paid again, new personal statements must be completed. It is also recommended that the applicant submit additional documentation that may represent their recent activity and reason for deferral (academic transcripts, proof of military or religious service, résumé, etc.).
    Once the new application and any other supplemental documentation is received, your new file will be merged with the original admission file and reevaluated for admission during the next scheduled Admission Committee review. Applicants are notified of the institution’s decision and new scholarship award, if eligible (to coincide with the current year’s admission deadlines).
  2. Accepted applicants who would like to defer their admission to the institution and retain their awarded merit scholarship must enroll by the published deadlines and attend the insitution for a minimum of one full quarter (3 months) before deferring. Please see the Enrollment Deferral Policy for rules and eligibility.
Enrollment Deferral

Circumstances sometimes dictate that a student leave school. Often, a student’s departure from school is temporary. There are two options for continuing students to participate in Enrollment Deferral.

  1. Some Neumont students temporarily leave school and notify the institution of a specific return-date. This is called a Leave of Absence (LOA). Reasons for their departure are typically medical, service, personal, or administrative in nature. A Leave of Absence may last no more than three years. Students are advised that a Leave of Absence does NOT defer repayment of educational loans. A student may not enroll at another institution while on a Neumont LOA. Awarded scholarships in good standing are placed on hold.
  2. Some Neumont students temporarily leave school but do not have a specific return-date. This is called a Withdrawal. When a continuing student must withdraw due to elements out of their control, it is an Involuntary Withdrawal. Withdrawn students (deliberate or not) must re-apply prior to returning using the short form found here. Once the Re-entry Form is submitted, the Office of the Registrar will contact the returning students to discuss terms and following steps. Students are advised that a Withdrawal does NOT defer repayment of educational loans.
